February 10, 2010|By Andrea F. Siegel | Baltimore Sun reporter

A mobile home at Holiday Mobile Estates in Jessup was destroyed and another trailer home was threatened in a one-alarm fire shortly after 1 p.m. Wednesday, Anne Arundel County fire officials said.

Firefighters arrived to find one mobile home in the 7800 block of Clark Road in flames and one next to it threatened by fire, Battalion Chief Steve Thompson said.

He said 42 firefighters were trying to protect the second trailer, and "the winds are not helping at all."

The cause of the fire was not known. It was not clear if anyone was injured, though rescue workers were evaluating one person, Thompson said.
